Feeling very down today/tonight. How do others deal with this? Nothing seems to help.

That's a hard question....I write in my journal...I call friends....I walk my dog.....I sleep....I cry. I have been on anti depressants for the last 2 months and they do seem to be helping.. I wish that I had been on them when Regina was sick.. but I always resisted them.. and even now I hate to take them but I know that they are the only way to keep me going right now. I still have my bad days.. but not as many as before...maybe you could consider talking to your doctor.. I also think I remember you mentioned that you paint.. Have you tried that? Art can be very comforting.

Keep strong Lisa... My prayers are with you both everyday

Wendy,

Thanks for sharing what you do when you're down - appreciate that. I have tried drawing yes but not painting again. I haven't written in awhile. The 'ability' to comes and goes. Sometimes I feel the need but can't, if that makes sense.

Hi Lisa

Yes that does make sense...I stopped writing too for a while then the panic attacks started again so now I am back to writing... I am also starting a scrapbook... i got the stuff awhile ago but have only just started to take it out of the bag.... its going to be hard but I really want to and need to do it..

keep in touch

Wendy
